Ars Celtica – Celtic Knotwork Art & Design

Quoted from site

About
I always thought that I’d be a writer. It was a bit of a shock when, sometime in the middle 1970’s, I realized that I was spending all my time making pictures. For the most part I’ve been doing that ever since.
During the early days of tabletop role-playing games I illustrated magazines, games, and gaming accessories for The Dragon, Alarums & Excursions, Wee Warriors, and Dave Hargrave’s Arduin. Still a teenager, I did all of this work under the pen name Morno…..

  • Triskelion Mandala II Poster (22x28")
    Triskelion Mandala II Poster (22x28")
    $32.45

    This is an expanded version of an earlier piece (Triskelion Mandala I). Once I'd lived with the first one for awhile I kept on picturing it in different ways, as a decorative cover on an illuminated manuscript, or as a carpet design, a bedspread, or a door. And when I looked at it that way I wanted it to be contained by an overall framework, as the central panel in a more rigid design - as though it were one of those objects I'd been picturing it on. This print is a 300 dpi printed copy of my digital painting. It's 20 by 24 inches in size, including a solid color "matte" border - that means that you could frame it as is, or of course you could have it matted and framed, as you like. The central design is a very ancient one called a "Triskelion" - a three-armed spiral. During the Middle Ages a variation on this pattern was adopted as the symbol of the Isle of Man, which lies between Britain and Ireland in the middle of the Irish Sea. The island was of tremendous strategic importance in those days, since a navy based there could dominate the passage between those two islands. These days it mainly seems to be a nice place to take a vacation. Surrounding the triskelion are a variety of spiral patterns, fretwork, gripping beasts, and knotwork borders in an overall design that recalls a piece of jewelry.
  • Celtic Art Cats Mug

    If only cats had opposable thumbs. They'd assemble by moonlight to carve this mysterious Celtic design on the tombstone of the King of the Cats.

    Since they can't hold a chisel, you can carry this for them; they'll bring you mice.

    A colorful Celtic knotwork design of interwoven cats who are probably up to something. They'll be hoping you're too taken with their interlaced legs to notice.
